How to Make Leftovers into a Revitalized, New Meal

December 9, 2014

Intrigued? Me too. This morning while I was sipping on my lemon water (with a twist), I decided I was sick of having my Maple Butternut Apple Squash with Rice as a leftover. So I decided to throw it out. 


BUT THEN - I rememered I'm trying really hard not to waste any food. So I got creative. Here's how I turned that delicious rice recipe into a hearty and spicy soup. 


In a large pot, add 1 tbsp of olive oil with minced garlic, and three celery stocks chopped. Sautee for a few minutes. 


Then add the leftovers of your rice mixture with 1 vegetable bouillon, 4 cups of water and the following spices: 


1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp turmeric

1 tsp onion powder

2 tsp Mrs. Dash Chipotle seasoning 

1 tsp cayenne pepper (or to taste)

a pinch of pepper 


Bring to a boil. 



Once it's boiling, reduce heat and add two HEAPING handfuls of baby spinach. Why? Because greens are good for you, and spinach goes well with everything. Duh. 


Simmer for a few more minutes, and then you are good to go! A whole new meal out of another one. NO WASTING. 


Cup of soup anyone? 


I can't way to repurpose more of my recipes and create brand new ones! 


That's all for now folks, 

I'll be back later with some dōterra information!
